I think it would amaze people how often they could be fooled by "quality" food, if so-called "lower quality food was packaged as "high quality" food and people thought they were consuming the "better" food. I will guarantee everyone that perception often trumps reality.

I walked into an Albertson's one day, and found that I could not pass up the produce... ALL of it was BEAUTIFUL, and colorful... It wasn't what I had gone there for, and I was only picking up something quick... but I spent A LOT of time going through the produce section getting some of the most amazing produce!

So true!

Sure is true when it comes to produce. I spend a lot on the best quality I can get. I couldn't believe the difference in taste and texture.

No wonder people balk at eating their vegetables!
I did, too, until I started spending more and getting the best tasting I could.
No more bitter tasting veggies for this girl!

I will scrimp on other stuff in order to keep doing this, as it's phenomenal what 7-9 servings of fresh veggies & fruits do for our health and our weight.

Better quality food is worth the price!

That is so worth repeating.

We buy the pumpernickel from Germany at World Market, one slice of that will fill you up nicely, and it's not expensive, you just have to put it into the refrigerator after opening it.

I used to bake my own bread. It is hard work but the results were worth it and i knew exactly what was in the stuff i made. Wish i could find a good local bakery like you did!

There is a small bakery in town that makes absolutely wonderful bread. They bake for our local health food stores, restaurants, the hospital and sell to regular customers.

I usually buy a loaf of multi grain bread once every 2 weeks and keep in the freezer to keep it fresh. I made sandwiches for a friend and her kids and she said the kids would likely eat two sandwiches. They both could barely eat 1 each and she said she could barely finish hers. I made myself a tuna sandwich for work with my "good" bread and then the next day a sandwich with "store bought" whole grain bread as we had finished my "good" bread.

I felt so much fuller with the "good" bread. And I stayed feeling fuller longer. I was buying it mainly because it tasted so much better then the "store" bread. I knew it was a heavier, heartier bread but I didn't realize the difference was that drastic.

Off to the bakery :)
